If you’re looking for a DJ who plays the widest range of events you’ll ever see, look no further than Brooklyn’s DJ Shakey – she puts the E in eclectic.
From playing clubs (NYC’s House of Yes, APT & Nublu) and music festivals (Bonnaroo, Mysteryland, PEX) to throwing her own events, like NYC’s Warper Party, DJ Shakey (aka Julie Covello) has always been at the center of musical creativity.
But that’s not all – she’s a regular DJ at Nevada’s annual Burning Man gathering and a longtime DJ for presidential/mayoral candidate Andrew Yang. In her 26 years on the decks, she’s spun radio gigs, private creative events, and roller discos. She was an early pioneer of controllerism and has been at the forefront of the live electronic-music revolution. And as a remixer/producer, she’s been busy in the studio, so… stay tuned for her upcoming artist EP of all-original music.
Want more? She gives back to the community through teaching. She’s served as an Ableton Live instructor, an audio-production teacher at the Lower East Side Girls Club, and a DJ teacher at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls. Oh, and she owns over 10,000 pieces of vinyl in her record collection.
A character, a hustler and true creative, DJ Shakey will tell her story and offer tips for those with an open mind. Don’t miss it – be there.
